WIP Mock Turtle
Started this over the weekend for Kenji's Alice in Wonderland idea. This is the Mock Turtle. Lewis just describes him as crying constantly and sitting on the beach missing the ocean. From that, and the fact that Alice is taken to him, and then away from him, I like the idea that he never actually leaves his spot sitting looking at the sea. I'm also playing with the idea that he's been sitting on the beach so long in the same space now his shell is falling off of him.
I'm going to add some more colors in, too. I think he could benefit from some blue washes here and there; maybe some reds.
I looked at the turtle from the Neverending Story a bit for his face.
